My wife and I are both 80 plus years of age and were really looking forward to this trip.  The Port of New Orleans was wonderful and got us on the ship quickly.  It is obvious that the ship is for a "walking crowd".  Those of us in wheel chairs and scooters were left to fend for themselves.  Elevators were a nightmare and closed before completely getting in.  Dining rooms are too compact and tables had to be moved to accommodate us. This sometimes required people to stand while they were eating and move out of the way.  The theater has very little wheelchair seating which was never enough for this cruise.  We had a handicapped cabin which was adequate for our needs.  (#9453)  Unfortunately, during the cruise, our gentle rocking turned into "heavy rumbling:, so the last several nights, there was little to no rest for us.  Debarkation was a nightmare.  On board the handicapped were helped to the pier.  The gentleman that was wheeling me, almost threw me from the chair going down the gangway.  Other passengers came to my aid and helped to "right" the chair.  The terminal was total chaos.  The line for handicapped was full of people who were staying on board that were pushing and shoveing anybody and everybody.  It appears there was no line for the people to get off that were doing the back-to-back.  It needs taken care of prior to the next cruise.  Very bad situation.  All of these conditions fall back on Carnival.
